M'Vila and Inter set to part ways, QPR a likely destination

Yann M'Vila was described by former club Rubin Kazan as a player with "excellent defensive abilities" and "incredible physical strength", but he never had the opportunity to show his skill set during his campaign at Inter Milan.

The French international has appeared in just 8 matches for a total of 265 minutes played in Serie A this season. Largely because of that, he decided, along with Inter, to terminate his contract in order to find another club where he would be able to see more regular playing time.

M'Vila arrived at Inter on loan this summer and the only thing sure about him was that he was clearly overweight. He worked on his fitness and made some definite improvements, but somehow he never quite convinced Mazzarri nor Mancini to let him play consistent minutes. It hasn't helped M'Vila that Medel has been playing very well and has consistently demonstrated his considerable work rate.

Now the strong defensive midfielder has begun his search for a new team and his only request is to get consistent first-team minutes in order to return to his once-impressive form as a prospect. M'Vila is still quite young (only 24), and right now there are a few clubs that have showed an interest in the player.

Torino and Udinese are two of the interested parties, but they don't seem like places where M'Vila wants to play. West Ham and Queens Park Rangers, however, seem to be probable destinations for the midfielder, who has said he would prefer to play in England.

The latter of the two English sides has been described by Sports Mole as the "most active" in the pursuit of M'Vila's talent, making QPR the most likely destination for the french player.
